Tisdale wins 2010 Benneteau 36.7 North Americans


After a strong racing season, Gary Tisdale and team on “First Today” hit their stride last weekend in Annapolis to claim the 2010 Beneteau 36.7 North American Championship. Fully powered by Ullman Sails, the team secured their title by nine points. Tisdale compliments his tactician Adam Burns and crew for outstanding work as they won four races and placed outside of the top four only once in 11 total races. The team competed with a new genoa, which Tisdale said was “the best I’ve seen. It provided the speed and point we needed to get to the shifts first.” The NA title followed great season that included second place finishes at the Youngstown Levels Regatta and the Great Lake Championships.
